I leave you with some books

Tomorrow morning I'll leave for a vacation! I really can't wait! Since I' won't be arround much, here are some books for you to read while I'm away!

My portuguese buddies Suzana and Leonor tagged me for a meme to share 3 books. I have more cookbooks than I would like to admit, but when I looked arround to choose just 3, these popped out of the shelf quickly. I love them! They're from Konemann and besides these 3 they have 1 about France, 1 for Greece, a double volume about the whole Europe and some smaller ones like Hungary (I also own that one). What I love about these huge books is that they are divided by the country's regions, they don't just give you traditional recipes of the but they tell you the story of the places thru its foods! They're really interesting! If you like food and traveling you'll love them.

Speaking of travelling, another tag came from FFichiban, to share 6 random facts. So here are 6 random facts about my vacation:

  • I'll be going to Philadelphia
  • I'll travel via London
  • I'll be away for 10 days
  • I'm going to a Bar Mitzvah
  • From the time I'll leave my house tomorrow morning until the time I'll arrive in "my" house in the US, about 20 hours will have passed
  • I'll spend a day in New York eating cookies

And before I go some awards: Thanks Yasmeen for the Inspiration and the Great Buddy awards and grazie Valentina for the Fantasia award!

See you soon! I'll try to keep you posted!

Have fun. I can't wait to see what cookies you're trying in NY.

Be forewarned. The weather around here is totally unpredictable. One week we're freezing our butts off and the next week we're wearing lighter coats. We get lulled into thinking it won't be a bad winter and then BAM! It's cold again.

I grew up in Philly and went to school in center city (St. Patrick's), where all the kids except me were from South Philly. I love Philly! Hope you get to visit the wonderful free historic exhibits -- best in the country. The guided tours of Independence Hall are so great, and I love Ben Franklin's Place, the Liberty Bell, and the Betsy Ross House. I spent many years at the Art Museum, too -- love it. Philly is the best!
